My wartime experiences

My saddest experience from the war was the year 1944, when the Germans took my beloved uncle to Auschwitz.

When I came home after school, I saw that mommy had been crying a lot. She quickly ran with my aunt to tell grandma that uncle had been arrested by the Germans. Mommy came home shortly afterwards and started lamenting. I couldn’t stand looking at it. I started crying very much because I felt very sorry for my uncle.
